Good, but requires strategy

The game is good, but you want to be careful before you buy. The gameplay works well, it looks good, and it's fun. The game requires strategy and patience, and if you don't have those you probably shouldn't buy, you're eventually going to want to declare war on someone, but it takes time to get your treasury wealthy enough so you don't go bankrupt in a prolonged conflict, and when you capture a reigon, it will sometimes require you to put down rebellions and such. Battles are incredibly difficult at first, but they become very fun once you're used to them. Overall really good, but the amount of patience and strategy required is great, so make sure that's what you want before you buy.

Goodish game

This was the best strategy game until Shogun 2 and Rome 2 were released for mac. The game gives a little too much power to line infantry and not enough to cavlary. It is not as exciting as other games in the series because it is primarily ranged warfare with the exception of a few epic bayonet charges. Every city looks exactly the same. Also siege battles are not the best working thing in the world. It is still a decent game but it could have been VERY good game. I would suggest Rome 2 or Shogun 2 over it though. I still waiting for a medieval 2 game for apple though. Medieval 2 was the best game of the total war series.

This is wack!

I attempted to download this via a wifi connection, it got about 90 percent done, proceeded to tell me there was an error and couldn’t finish downloading. I was annoyed but figured if i tried again and made sure the connection was alright that it would work. Sadly once i hit install the purchased screen said “waiting” and has been stuck like this ever since. Now i have to go through the process to refund a pointless 40 dollar purchase thru the phone. WASTE OF TIME AND WOULD APPRECIATE SOME FIXES HERE
